Bahrain: harshness and hostility against freedom to use the Internet Minister of Culture and Information violates freedom to exp

Cairo May 7th 2009

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) declares its being disturbed by the persistence of hostility shown by the Bahraini Minister of Culture and Information Mai Al-Khalifa against freedom to use the Internet in Bahrain. This hostility began just after her taking the office at the end of 2008 and became really obvious at her first decision issued in January 5th 2009 entitled "the resolution No. (1) for the year 2009 on organizing blocking websites", the decision's articles obligated all telecommunications companies and Internet service providers to block any Bahraini websites whenever there is a decision made by the ministry.

It seems that the work of the new minister is limited to browsing websites and taking decisions to block them, as the number of blocked sites since she began her work reached more than three hundreds, while the number was only 26 sites before she takes her new ministerial post.

The policies of the Bahraini Culture and Information Minister which reflect increasing hostility to freedom to use the Internet, were fully reflected in retreating her earlier promises to support the freedom of information and culture in Bahrain. The first broken promise was accepting to integrate the two Ministries of Culture and Information in one ministry after her strong opposition to this integration. Just after she became a minister, she began practicing her hobby in blocking the websites and blogs. She also gave all her department's employees the right to block any website, while lifting the blockage requires a ministerial decision.

"The insistence of the Bahraini King on appointing ministers hostile against freedom to expression will remain a major obstacle facing those who demand human rights. And when the ministry of Culture and Information that should protect and empower media and expression freedoms, become the first entity to violate these freedoms, then talking about freedom of expression in Bahrain is just empty words." ANHRI said.

The last blocked websites following decisions by the minister were;
Afaq electronic newspaper http://www.aafaq.org and Hwaa Elbahrain blog http://bahrain-eve.blogspot.com, which had been added to a long list of blocked websites such as;
Bahrain Center for Human Rights: http://www.bahrainrights.org
Voice of Bahrain Forums www.bahrainvoice.net

Everest Base Camp Trekking often touted as one of the most beautiful of trekking trips in the whole world and rightly it is. Located at the lap of world's highest peak, Everest Base Camp (EBC) is rewarded as the best trip Nepal has to offer. Since 1920, Mt Everest has captivated intrepid men and women. There were some exploits of legends like Sir Edmund Hillary, George Mallory and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to put the mighty mountains on the map. Thousands of adventurers followed them making huge sacrifices. EBC Trek is designed to fulfill the dream of many people to experience the historic route to the base of world's highest peak. Since the beginning, Everest Base Camp Route has gained massive popularity and a lot of appreciation. The highlights of Everest Base Camp Trekking are the stunning views of Mount Everest, legendary Sherpa culture, wonderful Namche Bazaar, Tengboche Monastery, the best viewpoint of Kalapatthar, and beautiful Chhukung valley among many others. We gradually ascend through the wonderful Sherpa villages enjoying the magnificent Himalayan scenery, wildlife and visit a number of Buddhist Monasteries. EBC Trek culminates with a fine opportunity to trek to both EBC and nearby peak of Kalapatthar (5545m) for spectacular views of the Everest. Savoring the high mountain views with the unique and life defining journey, EBC trip can be combined with Gokyo Chola Pass Trek, or Everest Three Passes packages as well, making the journey bit more challenging and rewarding too. Encounters Nepal has carefully devised an itinerary with a number of rest days that offers an exceptional way to acclimatize safely. Having had hit the Himalayan Trails since so long, we have learned never to rush a trek to altitude in the Himalaya. Taking an extra few days makes all the difference to really being able to enjoy the trek and trekking in Nepal.
